  • Stephen Curry
    PG, Golden State Warriors

    Stephen Curry (left hand fracture) will make his return to the court for Sunday's game against the Wizards.

    The rumblings have now become official. Curry mentioned earlier in the week that he's going to do what's best for him, and he's given every indication that he plans to play out the season. Owners who drafted Curry are finally getting to deploy the former MVP right in time for the stretch run of the fantasy season. Jordan Poole and Ky Bowman stand to take the biggest hits with Curry back. Fire up Curry in all leagues.

  • DeAndre' Bembry
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    DeAndre' Bembry (abdominal pain) is being listed as out for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Bembry hasn't played since January 20th. When he can return, he'll take some minutes from the wing players, but he can be left on the waiver wire unless injuries strike the Hawks roster.

  • De'Andre Hunter
    SF, Atlanta Hawks

    (right ankle sprain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Hunter returned to action on Monday putting up 22 points, seven rebounds, two assists and a triple in a whopping 39 minutes. He should be good to go moving forward.

  • Dewayne Dedmon
    C, Atlanta Hawks

    Dewayne Dedmon (right elbow pain) is being listed as probable for Wednesday's game against the Magic.

    Dedmon entered the break with some momentum but has floundered a bit in the three games since play resumed failing to score double digits in any game. Dedmon played a mere 14 minutes in Monday's loss to the Sixers as he dealt with foul trouble early and often. With Clint Capela out for the foreseeable future, Dedmon will have the opportunity to get back on track as we enter the stretch run.

  • Robert Williams III
    C-F, Boston Celtics

    Brad Stevens said that Robert Williams (left hip edema) has looked good since returning to practice, and the scan at the end of the week will determine if he is good to return or not.

    Williams hasn't played since December 6th. When he returns to the floor, he'll enter into a timeshare with Daniel Theis and Enes Kanter, though Theis has earned the right at the lion's share of minutes right now. Owners starving for blocks should keep Williams on their radar.

  • Ben Simmons
    PG, Philadelphia Sixers

    Ben Simmons (back) suffered a nerve impingement in his lower back and will be re-evaluated in approximately two weeks.

    It was reported that the back injury was more than a day-to-day issue, and now we have a little more clarity on the situation. Al Horford stands to benefit with Simmons out of the lineup. Horford returned to the starting five and figures to remain there. Simmons owners will have to sweat it out and hope he can return to the court for the fantasy playoffs.

  • Allen Crabbe
    SG, Minnesota Timberwolves

    Allen Crabbe (personal) is being listed as out ahead of Wednesday's game against the Heat.

    Crabbe is only a 3-point specialist at best in deeper leagues He can be left on the waiver wire in all standard formats.

  • Alen Smailagic
    PF, Golden State Warriors

    Alen Smailagic has been sent to the G League and will not be available for Tuesday's game against the Kings.

    Smailagic averaged 10.2 minutes in the two games since the All-Star break and wasn't a fantasy option. Marquese Chriss (calf) and Draymond Green (pelvic) are both listed as questionable. If neither can go, Eric Paschall, Kevon Looney and the recently signed Dragan Bender will get all the run that they can handle in the Warriors frontcourt.

  • Luke Kennard
    SG, Detroit Pistons

    Coach Dwane Casey mentioned on Tuesday that Luke Kennard (bilateral knee soreness) could potentially return to the lineup when the team returns from their western road trip.

    The Pistons have home games on March 4th against the Thunder and March 7th against the Jazz. If Kennard could suit up for one of these games, it would give him a week or two before the fantasy playoffs start, depending on your league's schedule. It's worth looking to stash him on your bench or an IR spot if you have the room and aren't fighting for a playoff spot.

  • Wilson Chandler
    F, Brooklyn Nets

    Wilson Chandler (personal reasons) is being listed as questionable for Wednesday's matchup with the Wizards.

    Chandler has been seeing nearly 22 minutes per game over the past month but hasn't done much for fantasy purposes bringing back value outside of the top-200 during that time. He can be left on the waiver wire for now.
